General Description

The Landmark Series of Lantana is a group of everblooming, larger-growing evergreen tropical shrubs commonly grown as tender perennials or bedding annuals. These produce numerous rounded clusters of small, tubular flowers in an array of bright colors. These are often multicolored because their individual flowers open at different times and change color as they age.

Lantana prefer a full sun location and moist, well drained, average soil. These plants are highly attractive to butterflies and look best when planted in masses. They offer brilliant color to beds and containers all season long and may be trained into tree-like standards in tropical zones.

Lantana camara has been called one of the world’s worst weeds. It is highly invasive in locations where its hardy. There are sterile cultivars which may be used in the landscape. Lantana is a weed only in subtropical or tropical regions.
